Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

How long ago did this happen to her before?

Has her jaw only been locked this time today?

What breed of dog is she?

Is there any possibility of injury the first time this happened?

Have you had the vet take a peek at her yet?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We discovered the initial incident about 3 months ago.
Today, Baby only had one incident and still open.
Breed mixed Boston Terrier and ShiTsu
No because the initial incident lasted for a 5-10 minutes and returned to normal setting.

When she's eating or chewing on things, do you ever hear a slight clicking?
